IOTA

IOTA, a cryptocurrency for the Internet-of-Things (IoT) industry. The main feature of this novel cryptocurrency is the tangle, a directed acyclic graph (DAG) for storing transactions. The tangle naturally succeeds the blockchain (not a blockchain coin) as its next evolutionary step, and off ers features that are required to establish a machine-to-machine micropayment system.

Blockchain

Probably the most disruptive technology for the near future in which keeping the tempo (not resisting it) is a crucial task of every company and institution (think of the actual Banks for instance). What is blockchain? A block is simply a list of payments. A block chain is a list of blocks, each one referring back to the one that went before. However, when people talk about the block chain, they tend to mean the collection of technologies and techniques that underpin the Bitcoin system, which other projects have used as inspiration because they solve unrelated problems in finance and elsewhere.
